Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s no ball in the very first over of Rajasthan Royals’ (RR) innings handed Jos Buttler a lifeline as the Englishman punished the potent bowling attack of the Kane Williamson-led side in match No.5 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 on Tuesday. Giving RR a promising start, England opener Buttler teamed up with youngster Yashasvi Jaiswal as the duo recorded a 58-run partnership for the Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan side in the opening Powerplay.

Samson smashed a quick-fire 55 off 27 balls while RR debutant Devdutt Padikkal chipped in with a crucial 41 off 29 balls.
